    I was appalled by the article, Mark. I’ve handled many DWIs over my 21 years in practice – and I can say without hesitation that MANY of them were not guilty. I cannot believe that Tyler did this – contaminated jury pools not only in DWIs but also across the board. He made criminal defense lawyers in general look like horrible – like we are what many jokes are made of. The article demonstrates clearly that Tyler is all about the money. I know you, nor I, nor many great lawyers, think in the way that Tyler thinks about what he does for a living. I can say that we truly care about our clients, and about constitutional rights. As my first comment ever on his article sums up – YIKES! (WE – including our future clients – will pay the price for Tyler’s comments.)

    Damned fool’s going to have to file a motion in limine in every case, for the REST OF HIS CAREER, to bar the prosecutor from asking potential jurors whether they’ve read Mr. Flood’s article in which he stated that most of his clients were drunk.

    Unless, as in North Carolina where I practice, DWI is tried first on bench in District. Then he can assume the judge has read it, and will disregard it.

    “SIGH* All this from a member of the bar who makes such a good living and I still cannot get a job here in Texas.

    I shall once again immediately go to my corner and lament the passing of the “Gentlemanly Profession.”
